For Sale 1987 300 Turbo Diesel Sedan Red

For Sale: 1987 Mercedes 300 TD sedan

6 Cylinder Turbo Diesel.
Automatic transmission.
Power windows.
AM/FM cassette radio.
Power door locks.
Security system.
45 miles per gallon.
Red.
Tan leather interior.
Seats five.
ABS.
4 wheel independent suspension.

I have done a lot of work on this car.
It includes:
New, intake manifold gaskets from turbo connecting to engine block.
New, complete rear suspension rebuild including arms and bushings.
New, struts front and rear.
New rotors front and rear.
New steering dampener.
New, fan blower motor.
New, parking brake cable.
New, starter.
New, mufflers there are two.
New, extra large battery.

Compression is strong and it is fast. Has been up to 135mph in Kansas.

Needs a little TLC:
Passenger front window needs a motor.
Air conditioner does not work.
Windshield has a crack. All other glass is good.
Odometer is broken at 159,000 miles. I have put about 10,000 additional miles.

Contact: James

p.s. If you do not intend to wire transfer the funds for the car do not contact me. Do not tell me you want to buy the car and the check is in the mail. I must receive the money in three days. Previously, I had three buyers for the car and one man said he was going to buy. He never sent the check but kept stringing me along saying do not sell to the others I want it. A witch has put an evil curse on him.

How do you verify 45MPG if odometer is broken?

45 MPG is a ridiculous claim. and I don't care what powers are inter veining.

I used to drive a 190 Diesel WITH a 5 speed and in years of driving it I only eclipsed 40 mpg on 1 tank.

It always make me ??? the integrity of the seller when they make such BS claims.

mfagus,

you make a good point on the mileage...he couldn't get 45 mpg on that car if he pushed it the first 20 and drove the next 25 miles.

The milage is BS and he does not even state a price. On top of this, who wants to do business with that attitude? I don't think so. I can look somewhere else.
